Meet the Founder, Rachel Ashcroft
Rachel is an experienced Primary School Teacher, who having noticed the negative impact that the rise in stress and anxiety was having on herself, her work colleagues and even more alarmingly, the children in her care, decided to set up ‘Colour Your World’, a company which works to teach methods of stress relief, boost confidence and build resilience.
As a fully accredited teacher of Mindfulness with extensive training in the field of wellbeing and stress management, Rachel works with children and adults one to one, runs group workshops and supports children within schools to help them see the world in colour again when at times, things can seem very grey.
Rachel strongly believes that in-order-to help children effectively, we as adults must firstly look at ourselves and understand how to best manage our own anxiety and stress levels. How can we help children if we can’t help ourselves?
Rachel teaches mindfulness for wellbeing to children and adults of all ages and backgrounds and also runs training sessions within the workplace and online.
Mindfulness teaches us how to become more aware, how to acknowledge how we feel, understand why and choose the best method to deal with it in that moment, helping us to feel happier and healthier.rachel
